Ed Asbridge, the founding president of the South Hall Republican Club, is stepping down from his role after about six years on the job.

Asbridge, 75, announced the change at the club’s Monday, April 2, meeting at Blackshear Place Library. The club started as an informal group that had become frustrated with what Asbridge described as apathy in the Hall County Republican Party in 2011.

The club sprouted in Flowery Branch, which then as now was a growing population center in Hall County. Since it grew from a coffee table group, the South Hall GOP has held regular meetings in the Spout Springs Library attracting elected officials, candidates and others talking about issues affecting South Hall, the county or all of Georgia. It now has more than 120 members.

Club leadership will select a new president this month. Asbridge has served as president for all but one year since 2011.
